I can't even count the days because it's been so long. I stopped drinking diet coke when I was pregnant, and after my son was born, it didn't even taste good to me anymore! I just wanted to chime in and say KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! YOU CAN DO IT!
(My son is 5 now, if you want proof that it really can be done!)

Two weeks without a soda. seeing that scale finally drop is motivation enough to keep to it. I didn't think it would have that much effect, because I drank diet. I knew all the science, but I guess I had to see it in action before I believed it.

I grew up on Pepsi and became addicted to Mt. Dew as a teenager. As an adult I eventually switch to dt. rootbeer (cutting caffeine and calories). However, I still went through 2 12-packs a week by myself. Back in April I got a stomach ulcer from to much Motrin (6 day a week headaches will do that, I've consulted a dr. and I'm better now) I had to cut out the Motrin and any acidic food that would irritate my stomach, so I gave up soda: all soda, cold turkey! I haven't touch a soda since May 1, 2013 and most of the cravings are gone. When I really want a soda I get a carbonated flavored water with little to no calories (like the ICE brand). Soda, even diet, is bad for your teeth and will eat away at your enamel. I recent study even suggested that artificial sweeteners, like in dt. soda, will fool our taste buds but not our brains and cause us to crave more real sugar. Just a few more reasons to give up the liquid waste.

Day 9. I think the tea is really helping me to stick to it this time... I'd normally have broken the streak by now. I wasn't really a tea drinker before, but having the opportunity to test teas before buying helped me to find a few that I really liked so I'm actually drinking them.

Wow, I'm so HAPPY that you have all joined this challenge. Your all doing emoticon It is really hard, and the headaches do suck, but in my opinion it's worth it.

Some great benefits of not drinking pop are:
Reduced sugar intake
Weight loss
Better skin
Better sleep

emoticon Keep up the great work emoticon

Today is one WEEK without soda. Getting past that first few days was really rough (ugh, the headaches!), but I rewarded myself by visiting a local shop that sells loose teas. I got to sample a bunch of different types of teas and chose several that I liked. I learned some cool stuff too... like Rooibos (red) tea is great for boosting your metabolism. I'm not sure if it was the tea, the lack of soda, or painting my bathroom... but I dropped six pounds this week. I normally REALLY struggle to lose even a pound a month!

that was me when I gave up drinking coffee every day. It's the caffeine withdrawl, makes you feel like a bus ran you over. What helped me was to eat extra healthy in those first days to help my body detoxify. Good luck!

day 4 without pop, I'm not even craving soda water at this point

I totally needed this challenge! I have been wanting to give up diet Coke for quite some time now. I can't believe what an addiction it is!! So I start today!! Has anyone else ever tried to give it up and gotten headaches? That happened to me last time I tried so I caved and went back to it. This time, I'm just going to stock up on some Tylenol and work through it emoticon

I have been without soda/pop for (wait for it) 269 days!! I said that I will stop drinking it on January 1st. I have 96 days more of the year. HOWEVER, I'm not going back to drinking it. This is my year that I stopped forever. When I go out to eat with my family, I get water. I'm starting to love water with lemon. At first having no pop really was hard. But now it's nothing! There are those times when I just want something else to drink, so I get some flavor water. Ones that have no calories, just a little taste of fruit. My husband even tells everyone that I stop drinking pop, he is very proud of me! I use to drink a 24 pack of pop within a few days, then I cut back and moved to diet. Finally I just cut it all out!

I started my own no soda challenge before this. Today marks 25 soda free days for me! I almost gave into temptation this afternoon however I stood strong and told that soda NO!! Lemon water is my new BFF!

I will start this tomorrow because I am drinking a soda as we speak right now! I really need this right now and I will keep you updated. Oddly enough, I already have this as one of my fast break goals. It's just really hard to kick it!

to answer your question JACS37, diet soda is actually just as bad if not worse for you than regular soda. The HuffPo and USA Today have articles which describe the effects and the studies that have been done quite well here www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2

I've been soda free for 42 days! It's a challenge and like others who have posted I still have a coffee in the morning now and then. I used to drink a lot of diet soda and have been wanting to kick the habit for a while to reduce my intake of aspartame. Sparkling water usually helps with my cravings for something bubbly when they arise!

I'm proud to say that I am 164 days soda free!!! Believe me I still crave a Mt Dew like no other but I know that I will be disappointing myself if I give in now!! I haven't stopped drinking caffeine though, I drink unsweet tea with sweet n low. So idk if that is any better! Oh well at least there isn't any calories! lol Good luck everyone!!

Out of curiosity...... Is diet soda just as bad for you as the regular stuff. I only ever drink diet but I thought that was okay? My children are only allowed pop at the weekend but I also only allow them the diet version. I would love to hear your opinions :-)

funnily enough, as a teenager, all I would drink and eat for snacks was diet coke and granny smith apples (which is why I don't eat granny smith apples any longer, they make me crave diet coke) ;)


I had a third of a cherry coke on Monday (before that I was two weeks without pop), so now it is day 3 for me

Over past challenges, I've noticed A LOT of people with one of the same addictions as mine. Pop or soda. Soda always taste better with fast food, chips emoticon emoticon emoticon etc. So I figure if we can cut out pop emoticon , it will help us eat better too. Not too many people drink pop with an apple or banana.


So if soda has a hold over you, please join me in this challenge. Every day that you do not drink soda, drop by to let us know how many days you have been soda free. emoticon emoticon

You can even make it one of your goals, to make it easier to track.
